ACS | Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision

Cannabis as a whole remains a largely divisive and controversial topic, but all sides agree on one thing - more scientific research is needed. The best way to influence social, political, and economic policy regarding this topic is through data-driven scientific research conducted by the best and brightest among us. In order to provide an arena for the exchange of ideas and discoveries in the realm of cannabis chemistry and science, the Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision has formed within the American Chemical Society under the Division of Chemical Health and Safety.
